Being a Minnesota resident, I decided to learn about the state's HIE efforts. MN HIE is operational and has ~3 million residents (or 58% of MN population) in its patient directory. It provides medication history for past 12 months via provider's EMR or via a secure web application, and will provide following additional services starting this fall:

* patient eligibility
* lab results
* immunization history
* exchange of medical record information

Since medication history is based on pharmacy claims data, clinical data exchange will be possible starting this fall when medical record information exchange is offered as a service by MN HIE.

Do you know the "state" of your state's HIE?
